FUTONS FOR LESS LTD. / THE BIRKENSTOCK STORE WAS FOUNDED IN CALGARY IN 1986 BY ZEKE CALLAGHAN
Zeke started hand-making Western-style futon mattresses and sofa/bed frames because they were comfortable
and practical, and began selling Birkenstock® sandals because he liked wearing them. His first shop - an old house
on 17th Ave SW - was slated for demolition so he moved to Kensington Ave, then in 1995 to his present shop at
#109 - 14th Street NW Calgary.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
The Staff of Futons For Less Ltd./The Birkenstock Store provide superb customer service, fitting skills and product knowledge for our futons, frames, covers and Birkenstock footwear.
We are the last Western-style futon mattress manufacturer in Alberta. We hand-make our futons on site in our shop in standard mattress sizes: single (39" x 75"), double (54" x 75"), queen (60" x 80"), king (78" x 80"). We also make bolsters (21" long) and a loveseat/ottoman (54" x 54"/21" x 54") that becomes a standard double bed. Our futons are "built" of top grade upholstery cotton layers with or without a high density foam central layer. We can help you choose a futon, frame and cover to fit your style and budget needs. We have a number of frame options in stock - our futon sofa/bed frames are made by Plus Trading Ltd. in Ontario out of Legal Wood. We have an assortment of futon covers and fabric choices available in the store. We can deliver and set up your new futon sofa/bed for a nominal fee (Calgary area).
We have the largest selection of Birkenstock® sandals, clogs and Blue Footbeds in stock in Western Canada. We receive regular orders from Serum International Inc., our Canadian distributor in Quebec. We take pride in ensuring you are fitted correctly in Birkenstock® footwear and will be happy to order your particular size and style if we do not have it in stock.
